Ojai Vineyard Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2014

Member Review by EMark:

Something of an herbal nose with hints of stone fruit. On the tongue it is immediately and “not terribly big” wine. There are fruit flavors—some strawberry, some cherry. The upper palate gets the fruit “sweetness” part. A pleasant wine. I question its age-worthiness, but, right now, it is perfect to accompany a casual meal.

The Ojai Vineyard, owned by Adam & Helen Tolmach, works closely with a dozen different vineyards on the Central Coast of California and produces wines from syrah, grenache, mourvedre, pinot noir, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and viognier. About 6000 cases are produced each year, divided between 15 bottlings, most of which are vineyard designated wines. The key to producing special wine is in the care taken growing the grapes. There is an inverse relationship between quantity and quality when it comes to grapes, so rather than purchasing ours by the ton, we have long term agreements with our growers to buy the fruit by the acre. This lets us culture the vines and thin the crop to our strict specifications, yet allows the grower to receive a fair return. In the winery we like to watch the development of the wine carefully, yet prefer to do as little as possible. Experience has shown us that the least amount of moving, pumping, fining and filtering is always best. The ultimate objective is to show off the distinctive character of a vineyard site. Read less
